Wild Horse Week-Friends and Family Bands
If you follow me on Instagram, or Facebook, you know we have been visiting the wild horses.
We spent 3 days last weekend with them, plus a day the weekend before. Love them! It was one thing that made me excited about Utah again. Consequently, I have literally thousands of photos and I felt a Wild Horse Week was the best way to show you guys how wonderful these wild horses are.
Each day this week I will talk about a different aspect of wild horse life. Be sure to check out each days post, because towards the end of the week, there will be a giveaway.
Today is all about friends and family bands.
This herd is about 170 horses total. But within that herd, are separate and distinct family bands. Each band has a stallion, sometimes two, the mares, and of course the foals.
We watched this little family interact, and at first we thought the gray one was the mom. I took some photos of the gray horse being so gentle and nuzzling the foal, then we realized it was the dad and the mom came sauntering over. This little guy is well loved and cared for by both parents. And this is the norm in each family band.
This is a perfect photo of a family band. The stallion works hard to keep everyone together.
